WHS stops working after around 3 minutes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello I recently built a windows home server machine, and it was working great, I looked up a tutorial on how to set up a VPN on the server, I followed the steps, and it did not work (neither my windows 7 machine, windows 8, or Mac OSX machines could connect), so I un-setup that and installed hamachi, then that did not work well, so I re set up the VPN thinking I did something wrong the first time, however when I finished the setup it kicked me off remote access. I can now only access the server within the first 3 minutes after boot up, and then it stops working. The only thing that works is logging in through the web access. (servername.homeserver.com), I cannot get to remote desktop, the dashboard, or the shared folders.

    WHS 2011


    Stable bit Drive-pool

    advance admin console 

    Wake on Lan

    Applications installed:

    air video

    android clone of this, cannot remember the name and cannot get to server to check

    -I uninstalled hamachie

    -I uninstalled air video

    -I uninstalled the android clone

    -I uninstalled apple bonjoure 

      any ideas on how to fix this issue? thank you

  • I would suggest restoring your server from a backup and if failing that, a re-install!
